    The Power of Children: Making a Difference Exhibit
     The Power of Children: Making a Difference, the newest permanent
 exhibit at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, will open to the public
 on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2007, sharing the extraordinary stories of Anne
 Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White - three children whose stories teach us
 about overcoming obstacles to make a difference in the world.
     In this powerful 12,000-square-foot exhibit, museum visitors will be
 able to imagine the brutal realities these children experienced. Visitors
 will learn about Anne Frank and reflect upon what it must have been like to
 hide for two years from Nazi soldiers during World War II. Visitors can
 visualize being 6-year-old Ruby Bridges, who was surrounded by Federal
 Marshals as she walked through an angry mob to integrate a new school. Or,
 visitors can imagine being a teenager named Ryan White and contracting a
 disease which was so new that many people weren't even aware of what it was
 and how it was spread, so they were afraid to be near him.
     As visitors enter the exhibit, they will walk through a 30-foot tall
 "Tree of Promise" where their journey begins. Recreated, historically
 accurate environments reflect a special place where each child spent time,
 including the Secret Annex where Anne Frank spent two years in hiding from
 Nazi soldiers; the first-grade classroom in which Ruby Bridges spent an
 entire school year with only her teacher, and eventual friend, Mrs. Henry;
 and Ryan White's bedroom, filled with the items from his friends and the
 celebrities who took on Ryan's cause. , all donated by his mother Jeanne
 White-Ginder. First-person interpreters, live theater and real artifacts
 will make it possible to become fully immersed in their lives. For more
